Nature of Faith

 

“For those who take from Chris­tian doctrine only those things which they want, rely upon their own judgment rather than relying upon Faith. Thus, by this refusal of ‘bringing into captivity every un­derstanding unto the obedience of Christ,’ they are really more obe­dient to themselves than they are to God.”

... Leo XIII,
Satis Cognitum

“If you only believe those parts of the Gospel that please you and reject those parts that displease you, then you believe more in yourselves than you do in the Gos­pel.”

... St. Augustine
(Book 17: Contra Faustum Manich, ch.3)

“Either we profess it (the Faith) in its entirety, or not at all.”


... Benedict XV,
Ad Beatorum Apostol­orum Principio
